Sheriff’s deputies step up Bretzville Junction presenceDecember 6, 2017
By BILL POWELL
BRETZVILLE — The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department has increased its presence at the Bretzville Junction after repeated complaints of motorists running red lights there.
The traffic offenses at the intersection of state roads 64 and 162 occur most often between 6 and 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 and 6 p.m., according to the sheriff’s department.
A deputy looking into the complaints one morning last week did not have to wait long to witness the offenses firsthand.
The deputy observed multiple vehicles proceed through the intersection after the automatic traffic signal changed from green to yellow. Then, once it changed to red, another vehicle ran the light.
The deputy conducted a traffic stop and issued a citation.
Deputies will be increasing their presence at the location and violators will be ticketed, according to the sheriff’s department.
An automatic traffic signal was installed at the junction four years ago because of the volume of traffic at peak usage times coupled with the presence of Cedar Crest Intermediate School. The signal is predominantly green for traffic on State Road 162 but is activated as motorists approach the intersection from State Road 64.
